Contest #524 Hint

This one is pretty hard, so we are giving 3 hints:

1) Not the tallest, but has a much higher focal height.
2) We had to cut the copyright statement off of the image — it read “Image ©2017 SRES DRIGOT”
3) And yes, it continues the theme.

  7. Thanks for the hint : the copyright is enough to notice that this is in Madeira (google SRES DRIGOT, and see which sites crop up). It’s not such a big island, and there is one obvious lighthouse on a West facing coast :
